Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

This is one of my favorite salads I’ve ever made! The roasted butternut squash used in this recipe is delicious, and so is the apple cider vinaigrette (which suits many other salads!)

I forgot to take a picture of it on it’s own, but it is included in the picture on this post, along with a sandwich with homemade pumpkin challah with a fried egg.
